I sort of missed yesterday's log. We spent most of the day after workshop in the library doing some work. I plotted out the new parts of my thesis and I have a lot of things to do, but I have a new motivation for this story now. I got some great news this morning … Continue reading Residency Log: Day Seven

Residency Log: Day Four
We've mostly had the day to ourselves today. There was the option to go on the Tahoe Excursion to go into the city and do some ice skating and such. We decided to hole up in a classroom in the library and get some work done. It's always nice to help other bounce ideas around … Continue reading Residency Log: Day Four
Residency Log: Day Four
Goodbye Julie. We're going to miss you. You'll always have a home with our tribe. You can come back to us when you're ready. We love you.
Residency Log: Day Three
If the morning starts with freaking out your roommate cause of your meditation, can it really get any better than that? No, not really. It's been a rough one. I hit my wall early today and things have not been going great. There's so much to do that I run out of spoons by lunch … Continue reading Residency Log: Day Three

Last night, I passed out at … Continue reading Residency Log: Day Two
Residency: Day One
It's the first day of classes at my residency and I've only cried twice! (Once was cause I got sweet puppy kisses from Casey, the WCYA service dog) The piece I had wanted to use as my thesis might not be my thesis. I'm working with my previous mentor's editor this coming semester, a woman … Continue reading Residency: Day One
Truly Devious ★★★★★
Maureen Johnson has broken my heart in the past (I'm looking at you, Shades of London) and Truly Devious was no different. Ellingham Academy is a famous private school in Vermont for the brightest thinkers, inventors, and artists. It was founded by Albert Ellingham, an early twentieth century tycoon, who wanted to make a wonderful place full … Continue reading Truly Devious ★★★★★
It's the first month of the year! The TBR with the most hope, the most "I'll get through it!" to it. Will I actually stick to it? Who knows!
There are a lot of things I'd like to get accomplished this year. Some are pretty far reaching, but some I think I can handle. Then again, if there's some heavy depression sessions in my future, who knows. Every step is taken one day at a time. Writing Goals I'm looking to finish my YA … Continue reading 2018 Resolutions
